Q&A: why do mass meditations look superficial?
Question by Lex: why do mass meditations look superficial?
This question is for everyone, but I believe that someone who would attend this sort of thing would have a more beneficial answer for me.
Example -” Yoga Festival 2008: Pawan Guru – Wisdom of the Breath Meditation ” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLASTlYyxY8
I am not out to point fingers or rattle cages, just want to know why I percieve it this way and am I the only one to do so??
I am only looking for something…
I don’t believe I mentioned that I ‘was’ any particaulr religion, being out of the loop is not something I would refer to myself as, but thatnks for the info.
Tuisson: I’d like to believe you, it’s not that my westernized mind can’t grasp it, in fact If I were a western mind then I would be TOTALLY used to it, since the west is host to some of the largest churches known to man – where this kind of thing takes place too – just not while in a meditational posture. – How should I believe something that looks wrong, none of them have any rhythm, they look like the living-dead, energy? – no, more like hypnosis, and where are they all in their lives but searching, like me, what is the difference? Did I have to attend the ‘mass-festival’ to awaken?
Moheana: I want to agree with you, I am almost certainly already in that notion, but I have a question, yes it is harder to concentrate being alone, but where to I find that it is starting to have an effect on my life? What are the signs that show I am doing for the right reasons, what are the right reasons? It should take alot more patience and persistance.. it does, what else should I keep in mind?
Alex: Einstein said that Curiosity has it’s own purpose, then I will find my way soon enough. I cannot be sure of the safety of this mass meditation, just as there are black holes in space so are there black holes on Earth, the energy a star spends in the process of anihilation by a black hole is consistant, but not for the star. *make reference*
(hence consistant mass meditational energy – my opinion). therefor the new question is: how does a soul (star) know if it is becomming the product of engine to something other than ‘self’?
Many thanks for your input. 🙂
